Question about Computers & Internet
ASUS puffer motherboard in HP m1090n media center PC
Read somewhere that there are BIOS downloads that can accommodate low noise CPU fans.
This is what is installed now=
PTGD-LA/PTGD1-LA/PTGD2-LA Motherboard BIOS Update
The HP prescott is just over 50 centigrade on start up and rises to over 70 centigrade, but I can only see this in the
BIOS, so I reboot and go into the BIOS after it has been running a while and is still HOT. The air flow is MUCH hotter
than my 2 other HP computers in the same series that only have a 3.0 GHz CPU. I can easily live with their noise level,
but for the 3.6, I had to buy 3 pair of professional hearing protection to wear all over the apartment as I can even
hear it from upstairs....It is like living in a factory and the stress is killing me. I feel more relaxed when I put it
into hibernation. It comes out of hibernation to record, then I turn it off and watch the shows on the other 2
computers. Good thing I have a network, But since I can hear it from almost any room in the apartment, it is not a
system I would even recommend to an enemy, so I can not sell it.
The program speedfan can halp U. but the real reason wy is he so hot is beacuse tha thermal paste between the procesor and sa heatsink is old. U must replace that thermal paste and Ul see the diference
